I don't mean to sound like I'm knocking Ruger, because I'm really not. I have 4 Rugers myself, 3 pistols and a rifle. I think Ruger guns in general around about middle of the road, meaning they are good guns for a good price. You get a lot of gun for the money, but to me it seems like they tend to get overly hyped and it's usually by Ruger-lovers. I just haven't seen anything out of mine that would make me give them a recommendation over something. That's just been my experience.
And as far as this thread, there is MUCH more to the revolver world than GP100s and SP101s. I am just encouraging the OP to explore before using someone else's opinion to base the purchase on. I would hope people would do the same for me. I'm all about informed choices and it doesnt seem like the OP has been fully informed on other options.
